Going Dark

Journal Entry: Fri May 22, 2015, 2:36 PM

Not that you'd notice much of a difference but I'll be going offline for a week or two as I move flats and wait for the internet man to come and flip a switch. Fibre broadband? In semi-rural Wales? Well...maybe...we'll see what can be forced down the pipes.

It's about time I moved because my live-in landlord now has his ex-partner and her 6 year old son staying permanently. They used to have a stupid dog too but luckily that was given away. So I rented under the understanding that it would be just him and occasionally his teenage son staying over, but things have been too crowded for my tastes for well over 6 weeks now. And yet, I've really only just realised how cheap it actually was to stay there. Now I'll be living on my own and have much more bills to contend with!

In April I went on a work trip to Denver for a week, which was the first time I've been to the US in almost a decade. Me and my work mentor (who's only 1-2 years older than me really) went out to do some core logging. Which is to say, drawing a scaled graphical representation of features in a half-cylinder of rock, up to tens of metres long, drilled and pulled up 'cookie cutter' fashion from a borehole. Being ok at regular drawing, this is something I have picked up very quickly.

We only got 1 day free, so got the light rail thingy into the city and had a look around. Admittedly there wasn't much to see as we're not into the various famous sportsball teams that reside there. We did manage to find the natural history museum after a long walk, as US cities compared to 90% of things in the UK are huge. Food seemed to be either steak or fish. Not necessarily a bad thing, but variety is nice.


Majora's Mask 3DS is excellent, and I thoroughly recommend it to any owners of the system. Even if you were 'meh' over the N64 version, I'd say reconsider as there are a large amount of gameplay improvements and features to help with the 3 day cycles and save games.

The models are also available now! Papercrafts ahoy, if I can keep focused!

So...dibs on everything.

About Me:
Petroleum geologist and artistic dabbler from the north west of England and currently working in Wales.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

My drawn art is mix of dieselpunk military, real world history, characters from my fictional scenario, fantasy characters and fan art of whatever is on my mind at the time.

Besides that I design and build papercraft models using 3D data from games. I've worked on a whole bunch over the years from games on the N64, GC/Wii and PC. The templates are freely distributed in my gallery or over on my old blog. If you ever build any I'm always thrilled to see any pictures you might have! If you have any questions or need help, just ask through a comment or note!

Find me on Steam, the Wii U, and (rarely) Origin, as XenonRay.
